Presented by Genevieve Carver & The Unsung

Overview

Based on interviews with female-identifying practitioners across the music industry, A Beautiful Way to be Crazy is a tale of growing up and finding a voice.

Weaving together spoken word, live music, verbatim audio from the interviews and a few genuine teenage diary entries, award-winning poet Genevieve Carver and her multi-instrumental live band (Tim Knowles, Brian Bestall and Ruth Nicholson) take you on a journey that begins in 1999 and isn’t over yet.

Expect to meet the spirits of Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Delia Derbyshire as Genevieve navigates her way through school bullies, the pressures of mainstream media, anxiety and pregnancy scares, but comes out smiling. A Beautiful Way to be Crazy is an innovative piece of gig theatre exploring what it means to be a girl in the business of music, with a soundtrack moving seamlessly between pop, rock, folk, soul, classical and electronica.

Age Recommendation: 14+
